Personally I don't think anyone was mis informed by your suggestion at all Jeffie, and I do think forum users here didn't get the wrong end of the stick at all.

I think they are pretty clear on what they want (I voted I don't care, not because I don't but its either way for me and I wouldn't link my FB site to here anyhow) but to repeat my earlier sentiments without the schooly bit added FB is not the be all and end all of getting your business out there.

I certainly didn't get any extra feedback when I loaded my workplace on FB, no new potential members rushing in to join etc. What I do think FB gives you is an insight to people you have lost in your life, people you might want to sticky beak up on, and people who you genuinely want to re-connect with.

And for those such as me who re-travelled a previous life, be prepared to relive some of the those upsets. Its a biggie and hard to explain to people in your now life. I see ''kids'' who I nursed, who I bought lovely pressies for etc and who wouldn't know me now if they passed me in the road.

It added a new element to my life and something I am not entirely sure is healthy for some....

forewarned is fore armed.

..........Did this message clear my 'intentions' up??

Or to put it briefly; ignorance breeds fear, and I suspect the many ill informed claims here are 'frightening the horses' and generating a strong negative poll vote that is largely meaningless :confused:

I'm sure there are a number of 'No' votes that are well based (mine included) but some of the comments in this thread (and on internet matters in general on various other thread topics) indicate a low average knowledge of IT amongst many posters.

Does it really help the argument or discussion by pointing out the low average of knowledge of anything, by anyone? I don't think so, nor does it help people get the information they need or want.

Gosh it's getting quite heated in here. I use facebook to stay in touch with friends and whanau that I don't see much anymore. Also an IT professional here so happy that I understand any risk although there is really very little. People on this forum leave a lot of clues to their addresses names etc to track down quite a few of them if I felt the need (obviously I don't!). I think it's very popular nowadays to dislike any form of social media (FB, twitter etc) although as far as I'm concerned this forum is no different than those sites?? It's just a chatroom for like minded people is it not? The best reason to vote no is feeling sorry for Kate having to administer that as well!!

I have facebook, and frankly I don't care whether or not LSB has FB or not... I have some from on LSB on my FB friends list, including a couple of EX-LSB, but really, It's just another keep in touch website.

FB is like postits on the fridge of a flat, keeping flatmates posted on whats happening. It's just that FB is a LARGE fridge with lots of postits from LOTS of flatmates... maybe not as good an anology?

Mostly I chat on FB with people I have never met, and likely never will, Like a car modifying parts maker in the US, a Pornstarlet in the US, Church elders, several pretty young Ukrainian Highschoolers who use me for english practice, and some V8 mad petrolheads in the UK... Not many of my relatives....

Having LSB on my FB friends won't change enough to be worthwhile. Kate may be a Web Goddess, but Godesses aren't omnipotent, and updating FB would be a Massive job in and of itself. better to keep quality than go for quantity.

Agree with K303 and BV, I also have FB, as another part of me has contacts that use it as their main instant message or post it, system...sitting in hospitals using their iPhone/pad/whatever and apart from one goat member who gets a little personal regarding her boyfriends and antics around the paddock etc, ;) my FB friends are all OK, I delete all those who play games, the games part very easily so no farmsville nonsense coming in, I dont paste any info about me and if I have just milked the goat, and only allow friends to view..It seems more private than say on here regarding how folk give hints to where they live and what latest car/truck they have, as everything written here is on google for ever more!
and I agree that LSB does not need FB, and Kate certainly doesnt need another communication system to have to work at. This is easy to access,read and follow... and I am no 'puter geek who understands anything beyond two clicks

Well said, Andrea!! Just picking up on the comment that a "strong negative poll is largely meaningless", it seems a pretty clear indication of how people feel about the question asked to me. Regardless of how or why those responding arrived at their decision, in a poll everyone's vote has equal standing and it's disappointing to see people's opinions being put down by others because of an assumption of ignorance and their level of IT competency. That's not playing nice.

And for what it's worth, a 'simple forum' like this is just fine with me :-). That it is easy for people to use is a credit to those involved with the design.

Cheers, Mich.

I would vote no, just because facebeook will fall on its bum like Bebo and other social networking sites have in the past. I have alot of friends who are freinds with 500 people and they actually on know 10 of them properly. You get alot of fake people who try to add you are a friend from overseas and all they are trying to do is sell you stuff. We have a great service here and people on here are genuine and have the best interests at heart - keep this community strong.

FB has it's place in being a channel for people keeping in touch ... at no extra cost.
It is amazing what some people post, comments and photos, for the world to see. [:0]

I do have FB, I originally started it to play a game, I know [;)].... I have weaned myself off it now.

What would we gain?
Why would we go elsewhere to discuss our LSB matters?
Here it is available for future searches, on FB, lost in a million posts about .... ....nothing??

There are no bad questions only those that are not asked.

The problem with uninformed opinion is that it creates a wrong picture of the poll. If people say "No!" because "I have heard about this facebook thingy. My neighbor told me his son's friend used it. And then his computer crashed. All because of this new facebook thingy. I wouldn't touch it with a stick!" What then would be the quality of the "No!" poll?

And people, if anyone now thinks I directed this at them then - really - is it your own problem. I say something like "Some people might get the wrong idea" here and then people go all "What do you think I am stupid?" and it was enver addressed to them. As I said: Your own problem!

Cheers

I quite agree. So how about trying to help people make a more informed decision rather than point out how un-informed they are. The term 'IT' which people have bandied about is quite poorly defined in the main. 'Information Technology' What on earth does it really mean? And how can people use it efficiently and effectively, without exposing themselves to the poor security that exists? I think the usage of a lot of sites, blogs, forums, email message groups, social networking sites (and they can all be viewed as social networking at some level) exposes everyone at some level as well, and people need to find and work within their comfort zones, but also be able to get away from the hype and make informed decisions.

Polls are never really the best way to gauge opinion, as they never have all the choices that represent the entire viewing/using audience. And results can so easily be skewed.

People are for and against a LSB Facebook page for a number of different reasons. The reasons are valid to those that made them and there is no right or wrong answer here (as with many of the replies on LSB...).

For those that feel more information is necessary to change other's opinions, could they explain how much information does one need for that to happen? Who is suitably qualified to inform? Who knows - there are compelling arguments on both sides in the Facebook/social networking debate. But the poll question clearly asked for an opinion. If you really wanted to skew a poll, I could think of better ways to rephrase the question. The question as it stood was very "unskewed", I thought :-).

So.... whatcha going to do Kate? :-)

Cheers, Mich.
